That the generation to come might know . . . (Psalm 78:6).
God’s Word tells us of the importance of children in the eyes of God. In Russia and her neighboring countries, generations are growing up with little or no knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and reaching them with the Gospel is critical.
Russian children and their families face monumental challenges. Economic conditions have been unstable since the Soviet collapse, and even two decades after the end of atheistic communism, millions are left with an enormous spiritual vacuum. Parents want better lives for their children, and they are deeply grateful when caring local church workers show genuine love to their little ones. Because of this, evangelical churches have tremendous opportunities for evangelistic outreach and discipleship ministries dedicated to children. Best of all, as the children are shown Christ’s love through the local church and believe the Gospel, the children often become the evangelists to reach their whole families.
Children are the church of tomorrow, and whether it’s through SGA-sponsored summer camps, orphan ministry or Sunday schools, the God-given opportunities to reach them are truly vast.
